Noson Lawen in Newport
12:45pm Thursday 20th March 2014 in What's on
Newport Memorial Hall will hold its second ‘Noson Lawen’, a Welsh language concert on Friday March 28.
There will be a variety of acts appearing on the stage, including ‘Ail Symudiad’, the very well known band from Cardigan, Lowri Evans' band who has just released a new single and received BBC Radio 2 airplay, ‘Corlan’-a choir of people from all over the area that will be singing and acting a comedy sketch and Hana Murray, a young and talented singer/songwriter from Llanboidy.
Lowri Evans, Volunteer Recruitment Development Officer said: “This evening is an opportunity for everyone in the community and surrounding areas to come and enjoy a feast of local talent. There are many Welsh language speakers and Welsh learners living in the area, so this concert is a chance for everyone to come together. There is a welcome for everyone, even if you don’t speak Welsh – maybe this event will encourage people and give them the confidence to learn Welsh."
The evening is supported by Menter Iaith Sir Benfro. Tudur Lewis, Development Officer said: “It is wonderful to see the support that we have for these events and very promising to see so many Welsh learners coming along. It is very encouraging to see a small group of people working so hard to keep Newport Memorial Hall open and emphasising the importance of holding Welsh events here. We hope that we will have a mixture of people supporting the concert, from Welsh speakers, learners and those who wish to experience the culture of the music and Welsh language."
The concert starts at 7.30pm; tickets are £6, available on the night or from Newport Whole foods Shop. The evening is being supported by the Night Out Scheme through The Arts Council of Wales.
